This chapter discusses the tragic sense in contemporary democracy and education. With contemporary American democracy, the sense of being and becoming, are dimmed and even lost because the Deweyan growth lacks a sense of the tragic. If Deweyan pragmatism is reconsidered and reconstructed in the light of EMP, it can illuminate the tragic nature of contemporary democracy and education by allowing us to remember the loss that we are suffering.

Keywords:   Deweyan growth, contemporary democracy, education, Deweyan pragmatism, tragic, EMP
